Summary

ELEMENTAL delivers a powerful and unusually intimate portrait of modern environmental activism through the story of three eco-warriors united by their deep connection with nature and commitment to confront some of the most pressing ecological challenges of our time. The film follows Eriel Deranger, a Northern Alberta-based Canadian indigenous activist opposing the Tar Sands and a proposed 2,000 mile Keystone XL Pipeline, that would travel from Northern Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. In India, water conservationist Rajendra Singh, a former Indian government official gone rogue, goes on a 40-day pilgrimage down India’s once pristine Ganges now alarmingly polluted. Facing community opposition, Singh works to shut down factories, halt construction of dams, and rouse local populations to treat sacred “Mother Ganga” with respect. In Australia, inventor and entrepreneur Jay Harman struggles to find parties willing to invest millions on revolutionary turbine devices that he believes can slow global warming. Separated by oceans yet sharing an unwavering commitment to protect nature, the eco-warriors featured in ELEMENTAL offer an insightful and moving account of individuals overcoming overwhelming challenges.
